Grandmother's Step Stool

Mrs. Roy's grandson sits on this stepstool whenever he visits.  It puts him right at table level.  Mrs. Roy herself sat on this stepstool in Grandmother's kitchen back in the 1960's.  Mrs. Roy smiles whenever she sees this stepstool sitting in the kitchen because it is part of our family history.  Mrs. Roy loves traditions and this stepstool is a great one. 

Mrs. Roy supposes some folks would call this "vintage" and Mrs. Roy has seen reproductions that are pretty pricey.  Mrs. Roy is so glad Grandmother never got rid of any of her stuff.

So this Christmas morning, Mrs. Roy's grandson will sit on a seat that has held the rears of at least five generations of Mrs. Roy's family.  Life is good.
